the parched lands of the sahel and congo, technology is transforming things. everything is speeding up. everything is opening up. now, if i can talk about something i actually know about for a moment. this feeling reminds me a little bit, maybe more than a little bit of the arrival of punk rock in the mid 1970's. you see, the clash were the very base of the rock and roll pyramid and overnight gave the finger to the dreadful business, the lurgy at the time that was at the top of the pyramid. it was called progressive rock. epic lyrics, no hooks, no -- great reviews. [laughter] punk bands made no reference of being worthy of the audience. if you want to play, great, grab a guitar and you're in. the clash were like a public service announcement with guitars, and they gave youtube the idea that social activism could make for a very musical riot. so i'd just like to point out that none of your professors, not a single one, not ever has ever drawn or is likely to draw the connection between the arab spring and the clash. just a little intermission.

pressures and the uncertainties, and also other technology companies really did not have very good quarters as well. i thought the company did a very good job on execution, on cross control and market share gains. the fact that this company is grow revenues at 5.5% while its peers saw revenues decline 4.3% in the same time period, it really speaks to the market share gains that they're seeing and that the clear highlights to me were service provider video, retireless and data center all growing double digits nicely. >> kelly and i were talking about this earlier. cisco seems to sort of outperform -- seems to be an outliar. does well when others aren't and doesn't do well when others are. i'm wondering is that actually the case? because that's the appearance. and indeed whether we can take anything for the sector from this. >> i think the one thing that if you want to take away from cisco's quarter is that the u.s. enterprise for cisco grew 9%, versus 5% last quarter. that's the second quarter in a row where you saw acceleration. and this is a leading indicator for its broader businesses. th

of the information technology boom, creation of private credit and, therefore, rapid increase in tax revenues. and so what stephanie showed, this was something that was not forecast at the time. at the time those who were there in 2000 remember that the secretary of the treasury at the time was -- and the chairman of the federal reserve -- were talking about a 13-year horizon for the complete elimination of the public debt. and the congressional budget office was not forecasting that the information technology boom was an aberration that would come to an end, but it did. and from 2000 forward we were back into the much more normal position of the united states government running substantial budget deficits. and as the private sector rebuilt its financial position. so that's the first point is that long-term forecasts, the idea that one can control the future position of the debt and the deficit by actions taken today is an extremely tenuous and debatable idea. second point is that there are certain assumptions being made which create extremely ostensibly scary scenarios. those numbers that show and,

a lot of people talk about the science technology. >> engineering. >> engineering and math. right. [laughter] i do think -- i am all for studying all these interesting things, but i do think that having those kinds of skills -- the countries we worry about competing with us a lot of their focus is on those things that actually have real world usefulness in the economy, and germany for a long time i spent a reasonable amount of time in germany they've emphasized engineering and technical backgrounds and certainly china is doing it and as i said i'm also with historians and even economists. [laughter] but i do think that having a strong base of people with those kind of skills would be a great thing. >> i think the most important point is education matters a lot. if you look at the unemployment break down in the u.s. right now it is skewed very much to words high school graduates are sort of a range of numbers but i think it's around 13, 14%. and as you get up past high school graduate, college graduate advanced degree it drops precipitously in the there is a gap we have right now i
's starting. >> look at that. >> what can we do? >> we have all the economic technology and policy solutions we need to have to fix this problem. i have been amazed in the course of traveling the world with the research community, how many brilliant people there are out there who have come up with ways to fix this. what we need is a greater political understanding and popular understanding of the immediacy and reality of the changes. i believe that by using our voices, we can shift public perception. i mean that in the sense of our voice, the film making team, and the extreme ice survey team, and also in the sense of the general public and the media who can tell the story this is real, this is not something that's going to happen in the future. it's real and happening right now. governor cuomo, mayor bloomberg, after the big hurricane last week, they were right out there in front of the national spotlight saying exactly this. >> and they made that connection that climate change has very much to do with the kind of severe, violent weather we saw in the northeast. are you convinced of that, to
